For today's Ways to Use It Challenge (WT426), the topic is Discover! Use or try something new. For me, it was both…I used 2 new embossing folders AND I tried something new to me…embossing on duct tape.
So for my card, I wanted to use duct tape, but could only find some dark almost black duct tape around here, so I used some shiny foil (duct??) tape, stuck it to a piece of card stock and embossed it. I used some lg deckle scissors on the ends of the Man Thing part to look more like torn duct tape. The tool border was colored w/ Copics and I just happened to have a tool bg embossing folder to finish it off. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
Thanks so much for looking! If you'd like to read the story behind this card, please check it out on my blog: The Write Stuff

OUTSTANDING guy card!! I love the shiny embossed tape (I think I have the same stuff..is it self adhesive?) and your tool embossed bg. The border with the saws, wrenches, and screwdrivers is so cute (ok not a guy descriptive but what do guy's say when something is"cute"?)...GREAT card Julie!! Oh and I LOVE the funny phrase!
